THE LAST AMERICAN COLONY with PA'LANTE and Special Performance by MARIPOSA
Special introduction and recitation by Bronx poet Mariposa

Q & A with the filmmakers and Juan Segarra following the screening

THE LAST AMERICAN COLONY: One Man's Revolution                                      
World Premiere
Director: Bestor Cram, Mike Majoro
Countries: Puerto Rico/USA, Running Time: 90 min

In September 2017, Hurricane Maria pummeled the island of Puerto Rico, but it isn't the forces of nature that have done the most damage to the 3.5 million American citizens who live here.  A history of economic exploitation, forced dependency, and systemic racism coming from the US have all wreaked havoc on an island that many see as the last colony in the western hemisphere. THE LAST AMERICAN COLONY traces the life of Juan Segarra, who graduates from Harvard and sets off on a treacherous path to fight for Puerto Rico's independence, a struggle that he rightly assumes will lead to either jail or death.



Followed by a Q & A with the filmmakers
Preceded by:

PA'LANTE                                                                          
Harlem Premiere
Harlem Spotlight
Director: Kristian Mercado
Countries: Puerto Rico/USA, Running Time: 9 min

Pa'lante is the story of an estranged working class family trying to reconnect in the aftermath of Hurricane Maria. Starring Mela Murder (The Florida Project) as Milagros and Kareem Savinon as Manuel. Nuyorican identity and Puerto Rican identity are at its core.
